I'm so bad at painting on computer (or just painting in general). I know this is just a rework of a drawing that I did ages ago (can't really remember when I did it...), but I think this could be a good practice for myself.

if you don't mind my asking,
 do you know  where I can find a dorsal view picture of a koolasuchus skeleton, or any references you used?
thank you for your time :)

Sorry for the late reply, here is the paper that has diagrams of dorsal views of the specimen (www.researchgate.net/publicati…).

She is about 160cm... I've answered this a few times before but if you are interested then just read some of the messages above.

if you say so; I'm not going to argue about it since I've explained it earlier if you don't agree with it that is fine. Some people can see the logic some just can't :-)

Just imagine she's 13 years old, then it's perfect.

Not necessarily, if you stretch out the legs the whole figure would be approx. 20% (a little less) taller (see postimg.org/image/gt96shoa7/, though it is just a figure but you see what I mean...). If your estimate was a little less than 140cm before then adding another 20% (approx.) would make it slightly more than 160cm. Definitely not too short for some adult females. This would be my last respond because I've answered this for so many time now :-)

That girl is freaking tiny! Her chest is ~9 inches wide! Scale that poor doll up!

I've answered this before so please go back to my comment on March 11th 2010. You're not the only one that gets confused :-)

That doesn't change the fact that her entire head and torso is less than 1.8 feet long...Even with her legs extended she wouldn't be more than 1.45 meters tall.

No, I think you are wrong on this one. She should be about 160cm when the legs are extended. The lower leg on the left could be measured since it doesn't have much tilt on it (about 40 something cm; around knee to heel) then adding the thigh (roughly the length of the lower leg) then you should get roughly 160cm which I think it's not so bad for a female height.

I love this piece, it's got waves of ancientness radiating off of it :D .

How much of this would you say is speculative?

Thanks for your compliment. I'm glad you like it.

As for your query, here is what I wrote earlier to someone who asked a similar question (please see below):

"...As far as the overall shape of the animal (Koolasuchus)goes... it was constructed from other more complete primitive amphibians... hence the size was roughly approximated. All I have known and seen are its jaw fragments, and nothing else..." At the time the drawing was done or perhaps even now, unfortunately...

So pretty much the whole animal apart from the curvature and size of the jaw of course. Sorry to disappoint...

It's still cool, and probably not all that far off.
